EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Los Angeles Chargers improved to .500 on Monday night, besting the New York Planes 27-6 at MetLife Arena. The Planes had their three-game series of wins snapped, as they were held without a score.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers beat up in a terrible Chicago Bears group 30-13 last week in their greatest win of the time. On Monday night, the Chargers confronted a Planes crew bragging one the best guards in the association and prevails upon Josh Allen and Jalen Damages.
The Chargers dominated their subsequent straight match thanks to an unstable first quarter, during which they went up by 14 and showed predominant cautious line play that never allowed the Planes to draw near.
Eye-popping NextGen detail: Running back Austin Ekeler had three drops on Monday night, tied for the most in his vocation. Beyond the drops, Ekeler played a decent game, scoring two scores and getting done with 47 yards from scrimmage. Be that as it may, Ekeler drove the group in gatherings last season, and his gets frequently flash huge plays, so the Chargers (4-4) will require Monday’s drops to be a peculiarity.
Promising pattern: Joey Bosa has 3.5 sacks over the beyond two trips. Bosa cracked his left huge toe in the Chargers’ Week 3 win at the Minnesota Vikings, making him miss the accompanying game against the Las Vegas Looters. He hadn’t seemed to be similar player until the Chargers’ Week 8 triumph over the Bears, against whom he had one sack. Bosa showed up over and above anyone’s expectations on Monday, getting 2.5 sacks, the second most in his profession.

Zach Wilson breaks fired for the sixth time Tuli Tuipulotu breaks through to Zach Wilson for a gigantic misfortune and the Chargers’ 6th sack of the game.
New York Planes
Two hours before the game, Aaron Rodgers was sending off 50-yard passes in warmups – a momentous accomplishment, taking into account he’s just two months eliminated from Achilles ligament medical procedure. That was the hostile feature for the Planes on Monday night.
Things change quick in the NFL. During a three-game series of wins, the Planes were seen as spicy overachievers, carrying on with a decent life in their post-Rodgers world. Out of nowhere, they seem to be a false competitor with a striving Zach Wilson at quarterback.
The Planes (4-4) lost three bungles, permitted eight sacks and proceeded with their awful structure on third down (3-of-17). They squandered one more authentic execution by the safeguard, which recorded five sacks.
This has been the Planes’ story for the beyond two seasons. The offense has scored just eight scores in eight games. Four of those TDs were on one-play drives, remembering one for which the Philadelphia Birds seemed to allow them to score in a final stage circumstance.
The offense-safeguard dissimilarity, which subverted the past mission, could explode one more year. Rodgers, wanting to return late this season on the off chance that the Planes stay in dispute, could need to move his sights to 2024.
QB Breakdown: Wilson did without a capture attempt for the fifth time in the beyond six games. That was the uplifting news. The terrible news was that the previous No. 2 in general draft pick missed open beneficiaries and made a terrible display of detecting strain in the pocket, showing no vibe at all for Los Angeles’ guard – a protection that started the week 31st against the pass. For Wilson, this was an exhibition straight out of last season. Hostile facilitator Nathaniel Hackett attempted to go up-rhythm now and again while endeavoring to ignite his sluggish unit, yet all the same nothing worked. Could mentor Robert Saleh change quarterbacks? The reinforcement is dubious apprentice Tim Boyle. The Planes have previous starter/apprentice Trevor Siemian on the training crew. Nor is an engaging choice, so search for them to brave it with Wilson.
Disturbing pattern: The reshuffled hostile line was a wreck, yet that was not a remotely good reason. Tenderfoot focus Joe Tippmann began his most memorable game, Max Mitchell made his initial beginning at right watchman and Billy Turner was a fill-in at right tackle. Turner permitted somewhere around three sacks. Try not to be astounded assuming the Planes mix the line again one week from now that tackle Duane Brown is qualified to fall off harmed hold.
Greatest opening in the blueprint: Hackett was too dependent on the pass in the principal half, underutilizing running back Breece Corridor. Hackett utilized such a large number of five-man securities. Need No. 1 ought to have been pass security.
Critical play: The Planes respected Thomas Morstead, the AFC Exceptional Groups Player of the Week, by remembering him for the pregame player presentations, which is surprising for a punter. A couple of moments later, he outkicked his inclusion on a 59-yard dropkick, bringing about an 87-yard score by Derius Davis. It put the Planes in a 7-0 opening, and they won’t ever recuperate.
